Warner Bros has confirmed that Matt Reeves' The Batman Part II will debut in theatres on October 3, 2025, making Robert Pattinson's comeback as Batman official. A storyline summary and other details are currently being kept under wraps. On January 30, James Gunn and Peter Safran announced the release date for The Batman Part II at a press conference on the Warner Bros. set.
While Gunn and Safran are creating a new DC Universe, which will feature the 2025 film Superman: Legacy, Reeves' The Batman Part II will continue to be a stand-alone production and be included in the newly branded DC Elseworlds category. According to Gunn, any DC movie or TV show that is situated outside of the main DC Universe will be given the DC Elseworlds label, just like DC Comics.
Along with The Batman Part II, Todd Phillips' Joker: Folie à Deux starring Joaquin Phoenix and Lady Gaga, the ongoing animated series Teen Titans Go!, and a separate Superman film made by J.J. Abrams and written by Ta-Nehisi Coates are among the upcoming projects on the DC Elseworlds schedule. These films are all part of the DC Elseworlds universe. The latter undertaking, which was originally introduced in 2021, is still under construction. A draught of Coates' screenplay has been highly anticipated, according to Gunn and Safran.
While Gunn and Safran cast a new Batman in the DC Universe, Pattinson and Reeves will continue to explore their version of Batman in the DC Elseworlds sidebar. The two declared that a Batman and Robin film, based on The Brave and the Bold comics, will be a part of the DC Universe. Along with The Batman Part II, Reeves is getting ready to start filming a spinoff series centred on Colin Farrell's character, the Penguin.
To make sure that his BatVerse and the bigger DC Universe would support each other and not crash together in terms of storylines, Reeves revealed earlier this month that he was meeting with Gunn.
Last year, The Batman received positive reviews and brought in $770 million at the global box office. HBO Max is now streaming the movie.
